Summary, Analysis & Review of Jessica Bennett's Feminist Fight Club by Instaread Preview: Feminist Fight Club by Jessica Bennett is a guide for women to counteract behaviors and trends in the workplace that disproportionately damage their ability to succeed. Bennett's outlook on feminism was shaped early in her career by regular meetings with other women to discuss obstacles and share their successes in what they called a feminist fight club." Women often encounter people whose actions directly hurt their workplace performance. This includes co-workers, often men, who appropriate their successes, interrupt them in meetings, or disproportionately assign them uncompensated, menial, and administrative tasks. Adequate responses to these behaviors avoid direct confrontation but emphasize that the woman's treatment has been unfair or based on gender stereotypes. Women can sabotage their own success by defaulting to the stereotypical behavior that others expect.
